“Macherei in Berg am Laim is a neighborhood for doers – this is where ideas are developed and projects are put into practice. There is no better place for us to open our first hotel in Munich. True to our growth strategy of expanding to the largest metropolises in Germany, the new Scandic München Macherei complements our portfolio perfectly,” explains Michel Schutzbach, Head of Europe at Scandic Hotels.
The new hotel is managed by Carina Antic, who previously held the position of hotel manager at Scandic Berlin Potsdamer Platz for three years. Carina Antic is one of four General Managers in the German Scandic Hotels.
“I look forward to the responsible and varied tasks that Scandic Munich Macherei has in store for me in one of the most important hotel markets. It makes me proud to also be able to represent Scandic’s values in Munich with its concepts, which are unique in the hotel industry, ” admits Carina Antic.
Between individuality, high-quality architecture and a cozy Nordic style
Scandic München Macherei offers 234 rooms spread over nine floors, some with a view of the Alps, a spacious entrance area with smartly designed areas and a living room atmosphere. Bookshelves, game tables and two meeting studios are available here for small meetings.
The heart of the hotel is the F&B area. The Zieglerei restaurant with open kitchen, bar and terrace sees itself as a place where hotel guests and the neighborhood meet.
Based on former brick buildings in Berg am Laim, the new Scandic Munich Macherei presents itself in a clinker facade and represents an exciting overall concept. Between individuality, high-quality architecture and a cozy Nordic style, the journeys and work of the future are rethought and interpreted.
The transition from the reception to the bar, living room and restaurant is fluid. Earth colours, rust red and beige tones dominate the design.
The hotel’s Zieglerei restaurant and bar offers space for up to 152 guests and is characterized by a successful combination of flavors from international classics and a Scandinavian-Bavarian touch.
The Stockholm-based architectural office Koncept is responsible for the interior design. All 234 rooms are modern, have wooden floors and a reduced Scandinavian style. Selected art can be found in all rooms, but also useful items such as irons and ironing boards.
Depending on the type of room, the colors burgundy and beige highlight the fabrics and curtains. The size varies between 17 and 30 square meters.
Ten rooms with kitchenettes are available for longer stays. Another 25 are barrier-free and will be equipped as needed.
Dog owners are also welcome with their four-legged friends. As there is no phone in the room, guests without a mobile device can get an internal WLAN-enabled phone at reception. There is also a Scandic store and a spacious underground car park.
Sustainability in focus
The Swedish hotel group has remained true to its sustainability goals, which have been in place since 1993, even at the newest hotel in the Scandic family: electricity is produced from 100 percent renewable energy with organic waste from the residual factory, and recyclable packaging is used. for lunch collection. In addition, cooperation with the app “Too Good To Go” is planned.
In addition, there is a mobility concept with various sharing options, a very good connection to public transport in Munich and e-charging stations in the underground car park and in front of the door. A LEED certification by the end of 2022 completes this mix.
